| by Sean Kelly

The stunning moment a spider burst into hundreds of baby arachnids was caught on video (below).

In the clip, a mother spider is seen remaining completely still in the corner of a room before suddenly exploding into hundreds of tiny baby spiders.

Upon further examination of the short clip, the spider can be seen scuttling away from its babies and out of the shot.

The motive behind the mother leaving her baby spiders behind is unclear, although some species of spiders make similar moves as a defense mechanism, the Daily Mail noted.

Watch the fascinating moment below.
